OEFFA Policy

Farm policy matters to the farmers and families who work to steward our land for future generations. It also matters to our communities who have a right to safe, healthy, nutrient-rich food, regardless of race or class. And, it impacts the land, air, water, and natural ecosystems that sustain us.

But, too often, sustainable and organic family farmers—and those of us who count on them—are under threat from policies that support farm concentration and industrial agriculture. OEFFA works to counter this by making sure the diverse voices of sustainable agriculture are heard and that agricultural policy helps create a more racially and socially just and equitable food system.

State and federal policies shape our environment, communities, and health whether we are involved or not. That’s why your voice is needed to make sure public institutions are accountable to the people and the planet.

Join us in working to create a future where sustainable and organic farmers thrive, local food nourishes our communities, and agricultural practices protect and enhance the environment. We are stronger together.


OEFFA advocates for federal policies that protect and enhance our environment, strengthen local and regional food systems, combat consolidation, and level the playing field for beginning and BIPOC farmers.

As a leading grassroots policy voice for Ohio’s organic and sustainable farmers, OEFFA encourages state-level legislation that protects our vanishing soil, keeps farmland in the hands of farmers, and strengthens our local food and farm system.

Building on the successes of our Farm Bill Workgroups, OEFFA’s Policy Caucuses are a way for us to work together to affect change in state and federal policies. Our five caucuses provide a space for community discussion, planning, and strategizing for policy change.

Democracy belongs to all of us. Our collection of policy resources is here to help you make your voices heard and take action on the issues you care most about.
